How Often Should I Have My Building’s Air Ducts Cleaned and Inspected for Repairs?

Nothing says you appreciate your employees like the right commercial services at the right time.

Commercial property's air ducts

As a business owner you rely on commercial services for a boatload of upkeep and building care, including regular duct cleaning. Wait, you don’t have your ducts cleaned regularly? You’re not alone. There are a lot of business owners that just don’t know the importance of duct cleaning.

Why Clean the Ducts?

Your ductwork is a treasure trove of contaminants that, over time, could start to affect the health and safety of your employees, your clients, and your customers. Just a few of the things you’ll find lurking in dirty ducts are fungus, bacteria, mold, viruses, dust, and even rodent droppings. Yuck. These contaminants can increase allergy symptoms, fatigue, eye and skin irritation, sinus congestion, and illness. To keep a healthy and productive work environment, it’s critical to keep your ducts clean.

How Often Do Ducts Need Cleaning?

The industry recommendation is to clean the ductwork in your building every two years; however, this can vary by industry. Anything with carpentry or construction, lots of textiles, cooking, or even animals need more regular cleaning. The environment and climate where your business is located can also be a factor.

What about Inspection?

Having your ducts inspected is a great way to check to see if cleaning is required, but it’s also an important way to check the integrity of the ductwork to make sure there aren’t any cracks or broken seals. If there is a need for repair, finding it sooner rather than later can save you money, not only on repairs but on energy loss from an ineffective ventilation system. Regular inspection should be done at least annually to be sure everything is in working order.
